About the Course

Our beginner course will offer a brief introduction to the history of candle-making, an understanding of the types of waxes available and their advantages and disadvantages, how size and types of candle wick are also important, burn times and so on.

We will then move on to the equipment necessary for the hobbyist. All the techniques will be explained and demonstrated, and common mistakes ironed out.

Our hands-on course is designed with fun in mind for the whole family to enjoy. You will have an opportunity to make your own candles - from simple tea lights to pillar candles and scented jar candles - that you can take home with you.

Our objective is to offer a fun and informative course with small classes; a maximum of 7 people.

Want to review this course?

I had an amazing one to one master class with Simon Harman. The class content was informative and fun.
We used wax, wick, colour, scent and moulds in a variety of ways.
This course is for everyone you will definitely want to go straight home and start candle making.

Thank you Simon

I lucked out today as the other people on my course had cancelled and I ended up having a 1-2-1 with Simon. He explained everything thoroughly and was happy to share all the tips and tricks of candle making at a great pace. I came away having made a range of candles and the course more than lived up to my expectations! Definitely recommended for the beginner.
